Coming Soon: Wake Up, Leonard

Part self-help nightmare and all comedy,¬†Wake Up, Leonard follows someone failing miserably to stay on the right vibe. The film tells the story of a broken-hearted seeker with a tenuous grasp on wellness and too much faith in “the Universe.”

A feel good movie about feeling bad, we follow Leonard (Nigel DeFriez) moving into a new apartment with help from his perpetually stoned sister Orla (Kira Pearson). An out-of-work actor and overworked assistant, Leonard rushes to his boss’s house to hang Christmas decorations and receives an unexpected text from his ex that gives Leonard false hope and a little direction.

An improvised feature shot during the pandemic, Wake Up, Leonard¬†explores themes of mental health, queer love and self-acceptance that asks… “It’s a wonderful life?”
